^Yeah, once he became the Dartk One. You seem to think that he was evil before he became the Dark One. The show, the writers and the producers have made the point that he wasn’t. But you still seem to think that he was always evil, and that the curse isn’t effecting him. Even though it has been stated numerous times on the show and by the writers and producers that the curse is what’s making him evil.
Yeah, I agree. I’m surprised this is even up for debate. I thought it was made explicitly clear that Rumpel used to be a good man, but the curse started eating away at his soul. That’s why Belle and Baelfire kept trying to break his curse. They new he was good man before he became the Dark One, and they wanted to bring that back. But it’s all just opinion. I guess it’s all a matter of whether you like the character or not.
Anyhoo, yeah Rumpel is probably the crocodile in this story. But I thought using the medalion would have been an interesting way for Rumpel to get revenge on Hook for seducing his wife.
